Concomitant coronary artery revascularization and right pneumonectomy without cardiopulmonary bypass
Hensens A. G., Zeebregts C. J. A. M., Liem T. H., Gehlmann H., Lacquet L. K.
Combined coronary artery bypass grafting (CANG) and pneumonectomy has a high morbidity and moratlity rate, especially when the right lung has to be removed. A patient is described who underwent a CABG operation through a midline sternotomy without the use of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), and a right pneumonectomy through a right lateral thoracotomy in one operative session. To our knowledge, this is the first case in which this operative strategy was employed. CABG operations without the use of CPB might put concomitant lung surgery in a new perspective.
